Library and Resource Center

Committed to Mercy's mission of nurturing life-long learners and global citizens, who are curious about and engaged with the world, and who act from a base of faith and compassion, Mercy High School Resource Center/Library actively supports each Mercy student in becoming a self-directed reader and competent user of information. Our Resource Center staff collaborates with Mercy's faculty, provides class and one-on-one instruction in research, and offers friendly help in exploring the library's books, magazines, and electronic resources, and in thoughtful use of the Internet.

Exploring books and the library

Hailey's required readings includes some oldies but goodies and one or two new books that I don't know and will have to get.
